Anne Camper, Regents Professor in Montana State University's Department of Civil Engineering, will continue the university's Provost's Distinguished Lecturer Series with "From Watershed to Tap: The science and engineering of your drinking water." The event is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 3, at the Museum of the Rockies' Hager Auditorium. A reception will follow.
Drought, increased water demand and increased awareness of the health aspects of water requiring continued research to ensure that demand and quality expectations are met, said Camper, who is also an affiliated faculty member with the Center for Biofilm Engineering and associate dean for faculty and administration in the College of Engineering. In 2014 Camper also was inducted into the National Academy of Inventors.
Camper's lecture is expected to cover the evolution of microbial standards for drinking water, the research that was required to determine risks and solutions and issues that are on the horizon, such as water shortages, the impact of plumbing and new regulations. Discussion will include aspects important in underserved communities as well as those facing larger municipalities.
The Provost's Distinguished Lecturer Series, which is free and open to the public, recognizes faculty distinguished at MSU for their scholarship and creativity. Faculty presenting during the series will reflect on the inspirations for their work in lectures suited for professionals and lay people alike.
